Social worker, Elizabeth Griffin Hall, has told ABC News, that just moments prior to the explosion, Josh Powell told his sons he had a “big surprise” for them.
He then “shrugged his shoulders and slammed the door.”
What followed can only be described as terror, horror, and mayhem for his five and seven year-old sons.
“The son of a bitch tried to chop off their heads before immolating them in a homemade inferno that also spat him back into the hell from which he came.” ~Marc Klaas
Anyone with two degrees of intelligence knows Josh Powell murdered his wife, Susan Powell, in December of 2009.
The circumstantial evidence against Powell was overwhelming. His sons even drew pictures of mommie in the trunk of the car.
In my opinion, the authorities fucked up by not arresting Josh Powell for the death of his wife. If they had, little Charlie and Braden might have been alive today.
Now we learn that documents disclose Josh Powell showed disturbing behavior as an adolescent.
Terrica Powell, says her son had once tried to commit suicide, and threatened her with a butcher knife.
“Terrica Powell worried that Josh and another teenage brother could destroy their family, which included younger siblings, she wrote in a statement filed in court.”
Earlier this month, a judge ruled that Josh Powell could not have custody of his sons unless he had a psycho-sexual evaluation, and a month after Susan was last seen alive, Josh Powell moved his boys out of state to live with his father, who police are accusing of possessing child pornography and of voyeurism.
What the hell had gone on in Josh’s childhood?
I have always suspected that Josh had rage for his mother. I base this on the fact that I have always believed he killed his wife. People often take their repressed rage out on a person who represents the parent who emotionally, physically, or sexually abused them as a child. They hurt someone else, instead of the actual abuser. This is because, from a deep emotional bond, humans strongly protect their relationship with their parents –even if the parent has abused them (or not protected them from an abuser).
Now we learn that Josh did indeed have issues with his mother and a possible mental health problem of a sexual nature. Being that his father has been accused of having child pornography, there is indication that Josh Powell’s biological family possibly harbored child sexual abuse.
Josh’s parents most likely have serious psychological problems, and in their dysfunction and denial, they never got Josh help for his problems, and now Susan Powell and her two sons are dead.
Josh’s sister, Alina, is now carrying on the family motto: deny, ignore, minimize, and excuse. Alina says her brother did not kill Susan Powell, and that Josh was just a victim.
“I think this was the act of somebody who had been so damaged by the lack of due process, so harassed and abused and lied about that he just reached a point of feeling like there was no… I don’t know,”…..”I think he must have just felt that there was only one way left for him to protect his sons, from the pain, from all the emotional and physical pain they’ve been experiencing.” ~Alina Powell
Alina, please pull your head out and defend the defenseless! Please speak the truth about your brother the murderer, who you admit has ended the life of his sons, but gee, not his wife.
Please come out of your denial system and stand up for justice by condemning a man who tricked his little boys, took a hatchet to them, and then burned them to death.
Do you not understand that unwillingness to see truth, digs graves and lays out suffering for countless children?
